My wife and I have returned recently from a fabulous holiday in the Seychelles, seven days of which were spent at the lovely Hotel L’Archipel on Praslin Island. The holiday was to celebrate a special birthday and was made so much more special by the attention and service we received from the moment we arrived.
The hotel itself is located in a beautiful, quiet position at the end of the bay. The grounds and gardens are tended constantly and are lush and exotic.
Our recently re-furbished, and well appointed room was in an elevated position with a wonderful view of the hotel grounds and the ocean and C’ote d’or beach beyond.
We found the food to be of a very high standard and it was lovely to be served at the table rather than queue for a buffet.
Much has been said in other reviews that you do not have a permanent table for dinner during your stay. We didn’t find this a problem as we had an opportunity to find an area that suited us and choose a table close by. It was normally not a problem to find a table by a window for a cool-ish breeze.
It was very clear to us that a great deal of effort is made to make visitors welcome and to feel valued…we most certainly did.
Overall we find it difficult to fault the hotel and are already discussing a return visit as soon as we can.
